Richard Gere Meets With Indian Sex Workers

Gere & Dalai Lama: Spiegel.Com

“No condom, no sex!” insisted Richard Gere earlier today.

The Golden Globe-winning actor addressed a crowd of 10,000 prostitutes in Mumbai—part of his effort to heighten AIDS-awareness.

Just under 6 million people in India are living with the HIV virus.

“You’re unique. This is amazing, an unbelievable experience,” said Gere to the crowd, gathered at an outdoor fairground.

The star of Pretty Woman also made headlines earlier this week when the trendy Manhattan restaurant Nirvana 54 named a table after him. As a bachelor, Gere would often bring his dates to the restaurant’s Central Park South location, requesting “a secluded table where they would enjoy a romantic time together. One week he came at least five times, mostly with different women,” said owner Shamsher Wadud.

The actor regularly enjoyed champagne with his Indian food and “always paid his tab in cash.”
